New Music Friday on The High Note

Happy Cinco de Mayo and welcome to the first New Music Friday of May. As the saying goes, “April showers bring May flowers,” and this month’s blossoming releases are no exception.

Atmosphere transports us to new dimensions with their album “So Many Other Realities Exist Simultaneously,” while The Smashing Pumpkins continue their epic journey in “Atum: Act Three.” The Lemon Twigs delight us with their harmonious blend of sounds in “Everything Harmony,” and Canadian folksingers Gord Downie and Bob Rock team up for the captivating “Lustre Parfait.”

As always, the entire list of new albums released today, Friday, May 5, 2023 is below in no particular order. My most anticipated albums are in bold.

Let me know what you’re listening to in the comments below and on social media @highnoteblog
